Nice to meat you, Mr. Bateman.

We know how fancy business cards can be. We know how seriously some people take business cards. But all of these cards have one fatal flaw: they are not made out of meat.

Wake me when there's photocopy paper and receipt tape made from meat.

Is this what becomes of the trainers who are a little slow at Pumpkin Time in the other Tigers and Leopards thread?

I cannot agree: I think it is more like a quick way to say "Please please PLEASE oh pleasepleaseplease pay attention to me!!!!" -- you know, kind of like a novelty necktie.

For me, nothing says "I'm a jerk" more than walking around with a bluetooth earpiece stuck in your ear. Or maybe that is "I am too important to use my hands when answering the phone." I cannot quite recall.

This. That and playing mp3s from your cell phone's speaker on the Metro and riding your bike on the sidewalk through a crowd of people. New plan: I'll buy a few dozen of these business cards (the "slippery mystery meat" variety, please), have them printed up to say "Fuck you", and stick them to people acting like douchebags. Fire with fire and all that.

Look at those subtle marbled veins of fat, the tasteful mouthfeel of it, *begins sweating* Oh my god; it's even naturally reared.

These would be good to take to a MeFi meatup.

Oh, if only it were bacon. Could you imagine the glory of BACON AND LASERS!

Not that practicality is the point of something like this, but... if it really is delicious jerky, wouldn't potential employers just end up devouring your contact information, and end up licking their lips and wondering how to get in touch with you? am I supposed to store it in a fridge or in my MeatoDex? and if it doesn't taste good, then what's the point?

DEAR SIR:

I AM SURPRISED TO FIND YOUR MEAT-BASED BUSINESS CARDS SOMEWHAT IMPRACTICAL. PLEASE RESOLVE THESE ISSUES OR ELSE I MAY NOT PURCHASE MORE. I AM NOT A CRANK.

wait, did someone just say MeatoDex?

So if your card says "free range", does it mean you or the card stock?

That's an attractive ambiguity.

This would be good for a doctor's card. "I'm cured!"

They come individually wrapped, right? Cause if they don't, I can't think of too many worse things someone could pull out of their pocket and hand you at a meeting.

I try be eco-friendly by saving paper and you don't like these cards either.

I just can't win with you environmental types.

Maybe that laser could etch your card on the back of your hand, then when you shake hands, you just don't let go.

Hum. Novel idea, but that meat looks a bit too well-marbled to make good jerkey. I have to wonder how quickly it would spoil.

Especially in my wallet, where I keep my other business cards.

what is this porterhouse stock?? bet it isn't even juicy. local supermarket? absolutely. tastes like crap? it is crap. one color. no flavor. nothing special about it.
i will never make a criticism if i don't have a resolution.

you see this cut of meat? this is the most impressive meat business card i have ever seen. it is my meat business card. it doesn't fit on a plate, because it doesn't belong on a plate. it is going to take me some more years to grow the proper cow for slaughter for another copy of this business card. my card will be knife-cut. my card will be foil-wrapped for cooking. my card will be embossed.

dinner guaranteed. you're kidding? instead of telling you my title, because who cares about my title, my card tastes good for dinner. guaranteed. what do you do guaranteed?
